Richard Dawkins answers questions

From "How'd you get a sexy wife like that?" to "Why do you hate Christians?", with a pit stop at "Why do you wish Saddam Hussein were still in power?" My fave:
Should men submit to their selfish genes, dump their wives and go for younger, blonder models?

No. We gave up submitting to our selfish genes long ago, when we took up clothes, contraceptives, sonnets, cubism, astronomy, snooker, bungee-jumping and other things that our selfish genes would at best consider a waste of time. Scientific facts about the world do not translate into moral "shoulds".
